Melafine Cream 15g (Hydroquinone+Tretinoin
Melafine Cream is a combination cream used in the treatment and prevention of moderate melasma (dark and discoloured patches on the skin) to lighten the skin tone or appearance and senile lentigines (dark spots or age spots in older people due to exposure to the sun). It contains mometasone, tretinoin and hydroquinone.
Melafine Cream. Given its combination of three active ingredients, it is typically used for the treatment of slight to moderate melasma, a skin condition characterized by dark patches on the skin. Here’s how each of the active ingredients works in the treatment of melasma:
- Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone is a skin-lightening agent that works by reducing the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of the skin. It helps to lighten and fade dark patches on the skin.
- Mometasone: Mometasone is a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation and can alleviate redness, swelling, and itching associated with skin conditions like melasma. It can help calm any irritation or inflammation in the affected areas.
- Tretinoin: Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that promotes skin renewal. It works by increasing the turnover of skin cells, helping to fade and improve the appearance of dark patches over time. It also enhances the effects of hydroquinone.
It’s important to note that Melafine Cream, like many skin-lightening and melasma treatments, should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional. The use of these ingredients can have side effects and may not be suitable for all skin types or conditions. Additionally, it’s typically recommended to use sun protection (e.g., sunscreen) while using such products, as UV exposure can worsen melasma.
Please consult with a dermatologist or a healthcare provider for a proper evaluation and to determine if Melafine Cream is suitable for your specific condition. They can provide guidance on its correct usage and any potential side effects or interactions.
